WINDHOEK, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMA), Namibia's coveted music awards, will take place over an 8-full weekend period starting from Aug. 15 to Nov. 14, the organizers announced Wednesday.

The ceremony in its 10th year will award four categories over a full weekend, two on Saturday and two on Sunday and the NAMA Premium Livestream concerts will be exclusively available to view to people who bought a ticket to the show.

NAMA executive chairperson Tim Ekandjo in a statement said once a ticket has been purchased, viewers will receive a message containing their secure unique logon details to stream the show live.

"The ticket gives access to the live show, in addition, the ability to view the NAMA concert again within 48 hours afterward. All of the concerts will be re-broadcast again to everyone else, on NBC Television as well in three days after the live concert happened," he added.

According to Ekandjo, all the nominees in the categories will have an opportunity to perform their nominated song which essentially unlike previous years gives every nominee an opportunity to perform this year.

"This year we will also give every nominee a flat participation fee of 3,000 Namibia dollars (174 U.S. dollars) taking into consideration that COVID-19 has resulted in a loss of income for so many artists," he said, adding that all proceeds from ticket sales will go to a COVID-19 relief fund in support of Namibian artists and the live music entertainment industry.

According to Ekandjo, a total of 1.2 million Namibia dollars will be paid out in prize monies. Enditem
